Very Fun

The Guides were very nice and one offered to take pics of the whales because we kept missing them in the shot. All the guides were informative and would walk around and see if you had questions and would answer in detail. Will Defintly do again. All of them were very honest and we got to see a mom whale and her calf. Was completly worth it and absloutly loved the experience. Thanx you GUYS!!!!!!!!!!

Would definitely recommend this, however...

I would definitely recommend this tour. The customer service was great, and the cruise itself was also great. We saw tons of dolphins which was amazing, and they were all over the place, however, we did not see any whales. I knew going into the cruise that there was no guarantee, but my only suggestion would be that if we don't get to see whales, they should offer a coupon for another tour (not free, just discounted).

Fun experience

We saw about 5 grey whales, 2 on their own and then two adults with a baby. It was a little choppy which made it more difficult to see them, but it was still neat. The crew told us they didn't see any whales on the group that went out before us, probably due to the not-as-nice conditions. I would advise you to pick a nice calm day to go out, the crew seemed to indicate they have better success on those days. Take binoculars if you have them. The boat cannot get super close to the whales.

THE WHALES ARE AMAZING. With the ocean in our backyard, we sometimes forget what lies within. I highly recommend you take advantage of what's given to us.

Dolphins were very playful with us and the boat. I kept on the "lookout" for a migrating whale....and sure enough I saw it. Pretty far away but still exciting.

We went Whale watching on Tuesday, March 25 at 4:00p.m.. We were taken out to where we were surrounded by hundreds of dolphins. It was so much fun watching them all play and follow our boat. On the way back, our captain of the boat spotted some whales. He took us over to see them. To his surprise there were 6 of them. He followed them and took us as close as is legally allowed. Because we were the last trip of the day, he stayed out longer with us so that we could fully enjoy the whales. He made the trip so enjoyable. We would recommend this trip to anyone and we will be going again next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hundreds of dolphins - 6 grey whales

Wednesday, March 25th, 4pm cruise Didn't look good when we left port last Wednesday...but we ran into a HUGE pod of common dolphins. There were several hundred of them. On our way back to port we saw six grey whales and the ship captain let us stay out later than our designated time so that everyone would have a good chance of getting a picture. THANKS Dana wharf whale watching crew!!

Beautiful day on the ocean!

We had a great time! We brought sack lunches and sat at the tables on the top deck...thought we'd have a great view of the whales and dolphins, but the captain always kept the ship pointed at them, so we had to strain to see through the captain's windows. I'd recommend getting a spot in the front of the boat if you want the best views. I heard several people down there complain that they couldn't see over everyone else, so be sure to secure a spot on the railing. We saw 4 grey whales and a huge pod of dolphins. The captain was able to entice the dolphins to play, and they surfed in the ship's wake...sailing through the air, jumping and flopping on their sides. It was definitely the highlight of the afternoon!
